At 11:35 today (Friday 2nd) the gateway that connects Flashlite into the Polaris internal networks went down. RCC and vendor engineers were able to rectify problem, and restore service at about 14:10.
For the duration of the outage, Flashlite was inaccessible, and jobs running on the system that attempted to read or write to the GPFS file systems ("/home", "/30days" and "/90days") would most likely have crashed. Since the GPFS file systems are shared with Tinaroo, the same problems would have occurred there.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
